Idaho Hockey Team Punished for Stripping at Rink
BOISE, Idaho – An Idaho junior hockey team was banished from a city ice rink after players engaged in "strip hockey" -- shedding a piece of uniform every time a practice shot missed its mark.
Boise forbid the Idaho Junior Steelheads team from using the Idaho Ice World rink for four days; one player who shed his underwear briefly was suspended until next week.
Doug Holloway, Boise's recreation superintendent, says rink employees told him players would take something off every time they missed a shot.
An adult whose daughter was on another rink saw the 17- to 20-year-old Steelheads skating in their skivvies and complained to a city hotline.
Rink employees who noticed the scantily clad skaters urged them to cover up.
Police are investigating.
